Frumpy Middle-Aged Mom: Good news and bad news

Before you become a parent, you never really quite expect the way your entire existence will soon revolve around the moods, whims, tantrums, fits, grades, desires, tastes and behavior of a creature so small that you could take eight of him in a fight, even if you'd just downed a few beers.

Skyler: Forced family bonding has a silver lining

Growing up, my family and I took the same vacation almost every single year. We drove from our home in Las Vegas to La Jolla and stayed at the same motel with a courtyard pool and continental breakfast. It wasn't fancy or on the beach, but the small place had a nice European feel to it. (I think it was the courtyard and breakfast pastries that seemed European to my middle-school self. And I heard someone speaking French!)
